Council staff (including its contractors) must use the three key components of the RMP for their various functions that have the potential to interact with the environment – especially roadside vegetation – within Council managed roads.
The three key components of the RMP are:
Although the RMP is primarily intended for Council staff, it may also be used by the wider community to assist with roadside environmental management. For example public authorities may choose to implement the Environmental Guidelines, developers may be required to implement Environmental Guidelines, or the general public may want to have a better understanding of roadside environmental management.
The mapping product is based on a GIS roadside prioritisation model which is the method used for prioritising Council’s roadside environmental management. The model categorises Council's road segments by their conservation value. The categories are referred to as ‘High’, ‘Medium’ and ‘Low’ conservation value road segments. The mapping product also displays other data including certain riparian corridors mapped as Key Fish Habitat, Heritage Items and Conservation Areas.
The mapping product is to be viewed in conjunction with the Environmental Guidelines.
For more information on the mapping product – see the RMP Section 6. Roadside environmental management priority.
